Hi Ladies. I hope you all had a super Memorial Day weekend!

Saturday night all of a sudden my all-day-long morning sickness and vomitting just disappeared. I thought it was just a "good night," but nope...I seem to be all better. I've never been as sick as I was from week 5 to week 10...and I've also never felt better until 12-13 weeks. Now I did miraculously wake up sometime between weeks 12 and 13 with my first two feeling fine...but never at 10 weeks.

I'm super paranoid that something has gone wrong. With the pregnancy we lost I never got symptoms.

Can the doctor hear a heartbeat with doppler at 10 weeks and a few days? I am thinking of calling and begging for a listen. I couldn't sleep at all last night...just up all night worrying that something has gone wrong.

Did any of you ever feel better before the 2nd trimester?

Since I first posted I've now had some spotting...it's fresh and not brown. My nurse has not called back yet. I jump every time the phone rings. I wish they'd hurry up! They always return calls by 5pm... It wasn't a ton, just some when I wiped (TMI, Sorry!), and I did spot and/or outright bleed with both my previous pregnancies and early on with this one. SOOO, I'm trying my best to stay calm. I had slight cramping this morning that worried me, but it went away. None since the spotting. So I wait...and hope they can get me in first thing in the morning...I don't think they could get me in by 5pm today since they haven't called back yet. I'm trying to find "positives" to calm myself...but I'm really scared.

Hugs.... I know it is scary, but I do think it is normal to loose sympoms at 10 weeks. Sometimes you can pick-up a heartbeat at 10-11 weeks, but most of the time you can not. It might just be added stress for you to do a heartbeat check at this point, but if you are stressed and worried, call your dr or your OB nurse and asked to come in and get checked out. there is nothing at all wrong with that.

Take it easy and drink lots and lots of water.

Thank you for your quick reply, Sam.

I did think about if I go and they don't hear a heart beat I'd flip, even if it's just 'cause it may be a bit early. I went ahead and left a message with my ob's nurse see what she says.

I did "google" pregnancy hormone levels and found that at the 10 week mark estrogen and progesterone stop doubling and level out...so maybe that's just it.

I wish it were June 13th...my next appt and u/s!!!!

At about 10-11 weeks I had a few days where I felt great. I have also seen many people start feeling better about 10 weeks for the simple fact the hormones level out. As I got closer to 12-13 weeks the days that I felt good seem to be more and more with less bad days. I would venture a guess that its more to do with the hormones leveling out. But hopefully the dr can get you in and get a quick peek at the baby.

Thanks, Jess. I hope it just means I'm getting a break a little early this go-round. I posted an update in my original post at the top (not sure if I did it right). I'm really upset...had some spotting now...so just waiting for the ob's office to call back

I really hope everything is okay! I would be worried, too. I don't blame you.
My doctor won't use the doppler on me at this point because it isn't consistent yet. I hope they can get you in for an ultrasound to ease your mind. I'll be thinking of you and hoping for good news soon!

hun. As you know, both the spotting and the loss of m/s are not unusual and could well be nothing, but it is a scary combo after you've had losses. I hope they will fit you in for an u/s to reassure you, and I hope it's nothing!!!

I just got off the phone with my ob's nurse. She said my doctor does not feel I need to come in unless A) I'm still spotting come tomorrow or B) I have enough bleeding to soak a pad in an hour.

Not the answer I wanted, but kind of what I expected since I had spotting incidents with my boys. I just thought because of the loss he'd MAYBE realize how stressed out I am right now and have me go in.

Oh, and she said it's normal to start feeling better around 10 weeks, so they aren't at all concerned about that. She said while you more commonly read you feel better around week 12 or 13, those dates (as we all know) are not set in stone and the hormones have settled down a lot once you hit week 10...

So, now I'm just trying to reassure myself that all this can be totally normal...and the spotting especially "normal" for me...Too bad I can't just go to bed until tomorrow. Thanks for listening to me whine, Ladies.

So sorry they won't see you. I do appreciate my dr office since they will see me anytime just to ease my mind. I hope that the spotting has stopped or does stop soon. Did you do anything that could have caused the spotting? DTD, lifting, walking to much?


We are here for you.

With this pregnancy I was SUPER sick until about 8 weeks and then it went completely away!! I was so nervous but our lil babe is still doing great at 14 weeks + now! I was also freaked out like you were. With my 2 previous pregnancies, the Dr was able to hear the h/b on the doppler at 10 weeks. I hope they get back to you quickly! I'd keep hounding them though, if I were you!

Oh, just read they called you back. That sucks they won't see you I'd probably just call tomorrow and tell them I'm still spotting just to get in!

I hope they call you back soon. The m/s disappearing sounds kinda normal though. I know mine would stop, then a week later come back worse than before. It finally stopped completely for me at 16 weeks.

As for the bleeding, it must be scary. I feel it's hopeful that you did bleed with both your previous pregnancies though. I hope they get you in today or tomorrow for some peace of mind. And they might be able to find the heartbeat on doppler. I know some ladies can hear it at 10 weeks, but if not, they'll probably do an u/s. Good luck and I'll be thinking of you!!!!!!!

Just realized that they DID call you back. If you're spotting at all tomorrow, call them back. I know it's really hard not to worry, but like you said, you've done this with your boys and everything was ok. Hold onto that!!!!

I hope that the bleeding stops and you get some rest. I bled at around 11 weeks with this pregnancy and everything turned out fine.

If you are concerned and your own doctor won't see you then go to the ER. I think it is crazy that they won't make an appointment to see you. ((hugs)) I hope all is ok!!

Hi Ladies, well the spotting has stopped by this morning (late last night actually), so I'm hoping it was all nothing. Jess, yes I had done a light workout Monday night...and then yesterday spent an hour in my son's class helping his teachers take down bulletin boards. I didn't "do" much that seemed like much, but it's the most I've been on my feet since the sickness set in at 5 weeks...so maybe too much too fast. I don't know. I was up most of last night with a massive migraine (which I still have), which I'm sure was triggered by all the crying and worrying I did last night.

On a more positive note, my ob's nurse did call to check on me this morning. I told her the update and she said that if I am still so worried, just maybe call back later and say I had a tiny bit more spotting and my doctor will fit me in for an ultrasound. She's sweet. She said, "I won't say I told you to say that."

My doctor is a good guy, but he deals normally with very high risk pregnancies...so I just think he doesn't get alarmed by what goes on with me. I "got him" because of all the bleeding I did first trimester with Ben...and then the preterm labor...but sometimes I wish he were a bit more sympathetic to how worried a pregnant Mom gets, especially one that's been through a loss.

My Mom says to call back later and tell them I spotted, but I'm afraid to do that. I know that sounds dumb, but then I'm afraid "lying" like that will be bad karma or something. hahaha I'm going to try and see how I do worry-wise today...if I'm still upset real bad by tomorrow I'll just call and demand an appointment. I don't think they'd deny me one if I did that. What would you do???

I like that you don't want to lie. I would be honest and be firm about getting an appointment. Tell them you are concerned about the spotting and the anxiety is really getting to you... That with a history of loss you would appreciate the appointment just to make sure.

Be strong with them... they are busy but you need to be seen! (for sanity purposes )

I hope everything is OK and the spotting is over for good. I would call and be honest, but explain that you are very anxious and would like to have an u/s to be sure that everything is OK.
